, "governor romney was simply elaborating on what david axelrod had said about the obama campaign's effort to target key demographics, most specifically women." what's your reaction to that statement? >> well, reverend, i'm still waiting for my fruit basket. i'm not only a woman but i'm a young voter. i never received one. i think what we're seeing here -- >> it's coming, abby. it's coming. >> what we're seeing here, and david corn will probably say the same thing, is just a confirmation that he really does believe that 47% comment. he's very much at home when he's talking to his donors. and moreover, i think when we're talking about this so-called gift, when you give someone a gift you do it because you want to give it to them, not because they necessarily need, it not because they necessarily deserve it. so to suggest that by obama providing medicare to americans, to say that it's the same thing as passing out fruit baskets is not only inaccurate, i think it's offensive to a lot of americans. and i think it reconfirms a lot of the reason people were unsure about romney, this language, th
heart. >> john: was for me, too. i really believe that governor romney was so convinced he was going to win because he's been listening to his advisors who live in a bubble. i did feel sorry for him until he came out yesterday and pretty much did a triple axle flip-flop and said screw you 47% but a different 47% all over again. the susan rice controversy which i don't really know if it is a real controversy or if it is just republicans trying to play politics over something. we'll be getting to that as well. the fiscal cliff right now somewhere in america a man named cliff is plotting on killing the coworker who keeps calling him fiscal. finally, secession because really folks why don't you just go overseas and be ignorant there for awhile. i have one rule on secession if you can't spell it, you're not allowed to do it. or am i wrong dan? if you can't spell it, should you be encouraged to do it? >> when you say you want to secede and become part of canada or move to another country where they accept gay marriage,
they confirmed the authenticity of the recording november 14th. quote, governor romney was simply elaborating on what obama senior strais david axelrod had said about the obama campaign's evident to target key demographics, most specifically women. that was the other demographic targeted by the president bought with free birth control obviously. as for paul ryan, he just can't believe urban americans managed to leave their sad, cramped apartments and tenments and made the long trek to the voting booth. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout especially in urban areas which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> apparently mr. ryan forgot his opponents were giving out free birth control. should have seen that coming. now, some in the gop are trying to escape this whirling vortex of deep denial and blame, especially those looking to run in 2016. louisiana governor bobby jindal was out at a mike within hours. >> i absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. i don't think that represents where we are a
the gop is trying to figure out its next move after governor romney's loss on election day our next guest says the answer is, quote, staring them right in the face, recommending that party leaders look to republican governors who are doing big things around the country. he is the national journal hotline executive editor. you say republican governors out there have solved and confronted a lot of the issues that mitt romney was taking about or maybe not talking about. >> what is remarkable is there is so much soul searching taking place within the republican party especially on capitol hill when it's the governors that have outlined a conservative reform agenda. you look in new jersey when chris christie took office, he was able to pass even saoeultment reform, pension reform with the support of even some democrats who were initially opposed to him. you look at bobby jindal of louisiana who has taken over the republican governor's association and he was able to gain a claim for his leadership in the wake of hurricane katrina and ed indication reform. they are setting a model for how republ
aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> now, louisiana's republican governor, bobby jindal, says romney has it all wrong and he is not speaking for the entire republican party. he says that the gop plans to rebound from its election loss, it has to stop dividing the american voters. soledad? >> yeah, that's making some waves this morning. that full transcript of what he said, i mean, people can check out. i think it's in "the new york times," the "l.a. times" as well. a fascinating read. >> i thought it was remarkable, and actually quite surprised to read it, for a few reasons. >> or you can say, sounds like the 47% once again. we'll talk more about that. no surprise. let's get right to our next guest, chris van hollen. nice talking to you. >> good morning, soledad. >> let's talk about the escalation in out and out fighting now between israel and the palestinian militants. there are now 100 terror sites, apparently, according to israel, that they are attacking, in response to rocket attacks that have come from the palestinians. what is your take on what's happening here right now and how li
way that governor romney had been trying to do. >> was there any whiff of bitterness with regard to the reference it chris christie? >> no. on the call he mentioned it was a statement of fact. >> and what about responses from any of the big donors on the call? were there any complaints? were there any reactions from them at the notion that mitt romney used all their money in what was a losing effort? >> the donors on this call were not able to ask questions. i've heard gripes from donors privately but on this call someone on it described it to me as a spin and grin. it was the romney campaign kind of explaining why they felt they lost and also thanking the donors for what they said was a very good job and talking about the donors actually going forward, about maybe an annual meet organize monthly news letter so this group of people, they said, could shape the republican party to come. >> i would think you might have a reaction to this. >> that would be the most expensive news letter in history. i thought i'd been black a long time. i didn't get my gifts. so i'm a little miffed wi
, and that was a big gift to young people." republicans including louisiana governor bobby jendal and scott walker denounced romney's remarks and keeping in the campaign spirit, obama senior adviser david axelrod tweeted the following. "still looking at america through that 47% prism, mitt tells donors the takers did him in." >>> more news now. protests over austerity measures over europe continued late into the night. millions marched peacefully. as the day wore on, tensions boiled in over spain's capital madr madrid. protesters vandalized buildings and they clashed with officers. we want to take a early look at the markets with all that as the backdrop. steve, good morning to you. >> peter, very good day to you as well. let me tie in the story with what you've been talking about in the united states, ie, the debate on going after the lection about austerity, about the fiscal cliff. we have our own fiscal cliff in europe. it is called austerity. it is going on especially throughout southern europe. it is designed to get the deficits and these enormous debt to gdp levels under control. the problem
them out to vote. >> louisiana's republican governor bobby jendal criticized romney saying we have to stop dividing the american voters. we need to go off 100% of the votes, not 53%. >>> as expected, the new leader of china was named general secretary of the communist party. the country facing a slowing economy and demands for change. >>> next to colorado where a hearing for james holmes, the man accused of killing 12 people and wounding dozens more in a movie theater has been delayed because he was hospitalized. holmes reportedly ran into a jail cell wall and then jumped off his bed. but there are no details about his condition. >>> and now here's your first look at this morning's dish of scrambled politics. house speaker john boehner was easily re-elected to the post on wednesday with the exception of one vote, texas congressman nominated former speaker newt gingrich. it would have been perfectly legal but no one seconded the nomination. his fellow texan congressman ron paul gave part one of the farewell speech as he prepares to retire at year's end. >> sadly, many religious grou
and not the reason governor romney lost. what's the reaction been like in washington? >> republicans are very disappointed by this, and there are three big reasons. first of all, this is sour grapes, like this certainly isn't gracious. second, it's just not accurate. there were many, many other factors that were involved, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almos
. hilary, you just heard the governor of louisiana, bobby jindal, he's very critical of mitt romney, the campaign he ran. what did you make of that? >> well, i think there's just a whole lot of distancing going on. pretty typical after a losing campaign. i thought, you know, governor jindal spoke well about some of the mistakes republicans have made. a little bit of a mixed message. i think this was a values election, not the demographic election that some people like governor jindal and mitt romney have been talking about. so i think he needs to be clearer about those values. he did say we ought to not be protecting tax cuts -- you know, tax policies for the wealthy. i think the challenge for somebody like governor jindal who just is sort of sitting back and criticizing now is to take on republicans that are relevant. because mitt romney's no longer relevant. go to john boehner, go to mitch mcconnell and say let's promote these policies that help poor people that help the middle class that promote jobs. that's what the president's been trying to do. that's what he's calling for in

governor bobby jindal took exception to mr. romney's comments. >> i think that is absolutely wrong. we have got to stop dividing the american voters. we need to go after 100% of the votes, not 53%. we need to go after every single vote. you to connect your policies to the aspirations of the american people. i don't think the cam pape did that. as a result, this became a contest between personalities and chicago loves that. >> eric: here is where i am. i'll throw it out there quickly. i think the republicans need to focus their attention. some people may be too far right and some may be close to the center for you. pick a lane, republicans. get behind someone and win an election. this infighting is no good for me. >> greg: i kind of disagree. this is called a hate fact. it's a fact that people hate. this is how obama won. however, you do have to go after every vote. but you have to play the game they do. that is what the argument is about. even loves santa claus on christmas morning but no one wants the credit card in january. until that bill is due, which will probably come in mandarin the
to turn them out to vote. >> louisiana's republican governor bobby jindal says romney has it all wrong and is not speak for the entire republican party. >> absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. that is not -- i don't think that represents where we are as a party and where we're going as a party. i think that has got to be one of the most fundamental type ways in this election. >> governor jindal is considered a possible presidential candidate in 2016. he says if republicans plan to rebound from their election loss, they have to stop dividing american voters. >>> 47 days until we hit the fiscal cliff. but billionaire warren buffett doesn't see what all the fuss is about. the oracle of omaha says as long as president obama holds firm on the wealthiest americans paying more taxes, we can go right over the clip without plunging into a recession. poppy harlow sat down for an exclusive interview with the founder of berkshire hathaway. >> i was shocked when he answered me. you'll hear from him in a moment. he's the only ceo i know, i was just talkin
that maybe the gop brand was suffering and had been hurt. why is it that republicans are elected governor, but mitt romney could not win the presidency? >> i think mitt is a good and decent man. we talked a lot about that here yesterday. 30 republican governor, the most we had in a dozen years. most of the battle ground states have republican governors in them leading the way, turning things around, balancing budgets, doing it while lowering tax, seeing revenues go up by improving the economy in each state. i think the reason is we laid out a clear path, clear agenda. people gravitated toward that. and unfortunately, mitt romney's campaign in the end was not able to overcome the early attacks from the obama campaign back in june and they suffered the inability to clearly lay that out. republican governors as a contrast have been able to offer a clear plan for each of our states. we're going to change america one state at a time. we're optimistic about the future with great leadership here. >> gretchen: thanks for getting >> thank you. >> gretchen: your e-mails on oak trees and allergies a
them out to vote. >> some republicans were quick to distance themselves and the party from romney's comments. here's what louisiana governor bobby jindal said. >> absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. that is not -- i don't think that that represents where we are as a party and where we're going as a party, and i think that has to be one of the most fundamental take-aways from this election. >> even some other republicans, even more fired up, including our cnn contributor and republican strategist anna navarro. you have been slamming romney on twitter. you tweeted this. you said romney, take responsibility for being a flawed candidate with delusional campaign with no vision. hispanics don't want gifts. we want opportunity." were you surprised at romney's comments? >> i just couldn't believe it. you know, i thought we had heard the last chapter of things romney says that he shouldn't say, and then he strikes again even after the election. this is just not constructive. i completely agree with governor jindal. i don't think it represents t
into makers and to takers. this is a fantasy. we have a governor in this country who does some things and most of what mitt romney is objecting to is government. >> is there a government component here. mitt romney is talking about giving more tax breaks. >> paul ryan did an interview just this week where he was talking about the urban areas voting in a certain way. it seems that this is the fantasy, the delusion they've decided to carry on. they doesn't lose because their ideas were bad, they doesn't lose because of mistakes, they lost because somehow the 47% was given so many gifts that it dwru into -- got into 51%. >> they are going to be dogged by comments like this. it's not inclusive. how. >> we have republicans across the country saying we have to reconnect and connect with people young. dollar this gave them. >> john nichols, great to you have with us tonight. thanks so much. >> there's a lot more coming up in the next half hour of "the ed show." >> in my own personal experience, it was very important for me to elect young people and encourage people to come and when they come here to
